The state government of California needs to stop making new hunting laws or laws regarding the responsibility of somebody's BB gun and start working on making this state financially stable. And some politicians seem to concentrate solely on the advancement of homosexuals.

Five bills were on the governor's desk just this past week for him to sign into law; four were signed into law.

We are not paying you an extreme amount of money to advance your homosexual endeavors in Sacramento. If we don't vote these people out, nothing will get done.

We have a recession going on and it seems Sacramento refuses to see it. Our governor put a freeze on pay raises, and then pay raises were given to political aids. What has happened here, governor? Was this rescinded or overlooked?

Delta pipeline construction to Los Angeles and a high-speed rail line costing billions of dollars — one is devastation of the Delta, the other is a tremendous debt to this state. We need to get out of debt, and spending money is not a way to get there. We don't need a pencil-whipped budget, under the rug or behind the door, based on future forecasts.

If you get the chance, governor, check out the thousands of tax-supported agencies in California. Maybe some can be closed down. Governor, if you decide to check, bring a lunch — it will take awhile.
